General Information

Before & After Care

Before and after care programming is available. Before care starts at 7 AM and students will not be accepted after 7:30AM. Before care consists of culture building activities, homework help, online interventions and morning energizers to ensure that your child begins their school day excited and prepared to learn.

After care is offered Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM and on Wednesdays from 1:30 PM to 6:00 PM. Our after care program complements what the students learn during the day by providing them with additional academic support and fun activities in a safe environment.
